A Past Life Reason for My Mother’s Poor Treatment of Me?

This post answers questions from a reader who goes by the name, ImportantOrNotBlog, who wants to know if there’s a past life reason for her mother’s poor treatment of her.

She says her mother kept her hair very short and wouldn’t allow her to wear dresses. When people called her a little boy her mother would laugh and say she didn’t have time to deal with long hair. She was bullied at school and her parents just expected her to deal with it. Any negative reaction she had was perceived as wrong by her parents and she felt bullied by them. Both of them made fun of every picture of her throughout her life. She felt she had to participate in the activities her parents wanted to gain their approval, but never enjoyed what she was doing.

The Council asks ImportantOrNotBlog to look at the way she feels now, because this is what she planned to learn how to deal with in this lifetime. They ask how it feels to be put down, to be made fun of her looks, and whatever you do isn’t acceptable or enough. How does she imagine it feels to be looked down upon?

The Council says in another lifetime, they believe in France, ImportantOrNotBlog was born to nobility, was very beautiful, and you felt no one around you was up to your standards. You had a way of having the people around you feel less than what they were and not accepted. The people around you thought you were beautiful and smart, and tried to be there for you in a caring way, and yet you only saw these people as annoying and boring.

The Council asks ImportantOrNotBlog to look at her current life. How are her parents treating her? Do they make you feel less than? Do they make you feel unaccepted and not smart? Do they make fun of you?

You had asked in your current lifetime to experience the other side of your previous lifetime in France. What have you learned from this and how do you treat other people as you move forward?

The Council says her parents in her current lifetime have agreed in spirit to treat her the way she describes. They add she’s experiencing the flip side of the coin of her lifetime in France and it’s just an experience she wanted to have. The Council says as she understands this and treats people around her better, including her parents who didn’t treat her properly, this poor treatment will fall away. She will have more understanding and she’ll get along with her parents and the people around her.

Imagine what you created in the lifetime in France and what it felt like, and being the wonderful spirit that you are you wanted to heal this. The Council advises you to be the person who can’t understand why all of this went on, but still doesn’t treat people the way she did in her other lifetime, and comes from a good place within her heart as she moves forward.

ImportantOrNotBlog says she wants to start over and The Council advises her to take the knowledge she received in this post and work with it and she’ll see her life start over.

The Council closes by saying ImportantOrNotBlog can know that what she’s experienced in her current life isn’t from a lack of beauty or talent or not being accepted. She is playing her life out the way she planned in spirit so she could understand it better. The suffering you are experiencing in this lifetime isn’t your fault and it’s not because you’re a bad person.

You bravely came into your current lifetime to see what the lifetime in France was all about. Can you get to a point where you can see your parents and not blame them and feel anger, hate, or confusion towards them, but thank them for agreeing to play this role with you so you can feel better about yourself. Once you learn how to do this, feelings will change because you have seen what’s going on in a different way. You have seen it from the point of view of your higher self and when you accept yourself as the wonderful being you are, the rest will fall away.

Listen to our entire 9-minute session with The Council to hear all their guidance for ImportantOrNotBlog and the rest of us, and let us know how you feel about it.

A Mother-Daughter Relationship – Past and Present Lives

This post is inspired by a question from a reader named Merry, who says she’s always had a tumultuous relationship with her mother and asks The Council to shed light on the relationships they’ve shared in other lifetimes. 

The Council begins by saying Merry and her mother had very good relationships in other lifetimes and they remind her when the lifetime we share with a person is challenging, it’s not always considered a bad lifetime.

The Council says Merry and her mother were mother and daughter in a lifetime around the 1400s and were very close. At that time there were witch hunts and because her mother was good at making medicines for people someone accused her of being a witch. When this happened her mother tried to hide her daughter, but she was found and was drowned as the child of a witch, and her mother was locked in a cell for the rest of her life.

Merry and her mother agreed in spirit to return in their present lifetime, but her mother brought the memories of this previous lifetime with her. Instead of working with Merry to have a wonderful life, she turned off her emotions because she was afraid Merry would be taken away again. The reason Merry feels coldness from her mother is that her mother was afraid of being connected to her.

When Bob asked if there was a way to break down these barriers Merry feels with her mother, The Council said it would be difficult, but she should try to show her mother love and help her with everyday challenges. Love conquers everything. Show her mother signs of love in the littlest thing she does and the barrier Merry feels will begin to change. The purpose of this lifetime is to figure out ways to get close.

Merry says her mother is kind of her best friend, but her role as Merry’s mother ended when her brother was born. The Council says if Merry feels her connection with her mother now is one of being friends, can she learn to appreciate this? Can Merry see how her mother needs her as a friend? As Merry begins to appreciate this friendship the relationship will be able to develop further.

The Council says because both Merry and her mother were trying to make this lifetime work, they brought in a lot of fears that they are trying to overcome. Merry can meditate on what she’s gone through. She is strong. By asking about these challenges Merry knows there is more to what she’s experiencing in this lifetime. This shows she’s on the right path because a part of her that’s questioning knows there’s more and wants the answer. This is Merry’s connection to her higher self and is her spirit trying to get her to understand what The Council is talking about. Now, going forward, how does she handle things?

The Counsel closes by saying that through understanding what her mother has gone through and through meditation Merry can show her mother more compassion and more love, and when she can do this her situation must change.

Listen to our entire 17-minute session on Merry’s question about her relationship with her mother to hear all The Council’s guidance for her and the rest of us, and let us know what you think.

A Pre-Birth Plan With a Manic-Depressive Mother?

This post is inspired by questions from a reader named Susan about her and her mother’s pre-birth spiritual plan for this lifetime. Susan says her relationship with her mother was often painful, especially when she was younger, because her mother was a bi-polar manic-depressive. And she asks why didn’t family members step in to protect her.

The Council says Susan planned it this way. And her planning comes from another life she and her mother shared as orphan boys living on the streets and stealing to survive, maybe around the early 1800s. They both experienced a lot of violence and hate in that lifetime with no understanding and no love, just a will to survive.

When they both left that reality, as spirits they thought it would’ve been good if they learned how to forgive and understand. And so they decided to create this life together where her mother would be harsh and she would experience a desire to care for her and learn to forgive her. And what she learned about forgiving she would share with her mother when they returned to spirit.

The Council says knowing about this past life will help Susan a great deal with her relationship with her mother in this lifetime. And they ask, can she forgive her mother for the manic-depression she created so Susan could have an experience of that. Can she love her mother because she was willing to go though this disease to push Susan to understand and find forgiveness in her heart? That is what Susan wanted to experience in this lifetime. And if they follow through with their intentions, they will reverse the roles in a future lifetime and Susan will be harsh so her mother can learn to forgive.

Listen to the entire 9-minute session (below) to hear all The Council’s guidance for Susan. We find this session to be particularly fascinating.
